Kiss To Play Free Show In New Orleans


Plus the band announce their co-headlining tour with Motley Crue

The Times-Picayune reports that, as part of the NCAA Final Four weekend, KISS, the Black Keys and Jimmy Buffett are slated to perform free concerts in Woldenberg Park along the Mississippi River in downtown New Orleans.
KISS will kick off “The Big Dance Concert Series” on Friday, 30 March.
Meanwhile KISS have also announced a 40 date North American tour with Motley Crue.
Entitled simply The Tour, the two bands embark on their roadtrip together in July. It’s their first tour together since Crue opened for KISS in 1982.
“These guys are the baddest band in the f***ing world,” Motley Crue’s Vince Neil said on stage with both bands at the launch yesterday. “Our very first tour was with [KISS], 1982. To be able to do it now is amazing.”
“Seeing them on stage, it was obvious back then that this was the next big thing,” KISS’ Paul Stanley added. “We talk about bang for buck, this will be the definition of bang for buck on this tour. If you want to see more bombs and artillery, you’ll have to check out the military.”
